What does 'Mais qui peut you stopper' mean?

Answer #1 by Ginezumi The question 'Mais qui peut you stopper?' contains a mixture of English, French, and Frenchified English. The word 'you' needs to be written 'te', as the second person singular; or 'vous', as the second person plural. In the word-by-word translation, the conjunction 'mais' means 'but'. The conjunction 'qui' means 'who'. The verb 'peut' means 'he/she/it] can'. And the personal pronoun 'te' or 'vous' means 'you'. The question therefore means But who can stop you?Answer #2 by Monkeytypist In standard French, the question would be mais qui peut vous arrêter? or mais qui peut t'arrêter?
